I’ve been lucky enough to be given access to a garden over lockdown – I live in a small-ish two bedroom flat on the second floor, nice views of London but no garden space. Going out onto the streets to […]

We had our second meeting with Jungian analyst Catherine Bygott in Somerset on Friday. As well as discussions she led us in a physical exercise to connect us to our unconscious self. It was a challenging activity but really interesting […]

I am currently transforming my studio – I’ve moved and painted the exterior blue, the interior has now been insulated, I’ve painted it white and building shelves and worktops. It is an equally big transformation for me psychologically as I […]
I have continued to explore memento and artefacts. My interest in the urn has increased and I am currently working with vessels of various shapes and sizes. I am considering the mother as a vessel and the interchangeability of the […]
During 2018 to July 2019 I am one of ten artists working as part of a project, ‘Surrey Unearthed’ across the Surrey Hills. I am an artist and papermaker and work by walking, collecting, interacting with people and making.
